The perspective sub-reality of anthills

Have you ever wondered what it would be like, to be an any, to constantly live in fear of being trod on, spending everyday gathering food purely to expand your colonies existence, recognizing fellow ants, purely by sense of smell, have a completely different body shape to the one you have now, a body with six legs and antlers?

This is a sub reality, and one of many, Ie reality through a different prospective, some are major, Such as the any one, or being blind, others are more minor, like being tall, or short.

For you see, reality is not comprised by one single view on the world, But made of several hundred, maybe even thousands, or millions of sub realities all fitting in above, below, next to, and inside each other, purely because of everyone's views on the world.

For example, You may see a shirt as purple, I may see it as a darker pink, because or retinas react differently to the reflected light, The shirt is both of these colors, and more to other people.

Do you understand what I mean?


  1. interesting point you have there..

    ..only thing is, Ants are not deer, the have antennae not antlers..

  2. And you spelt it "any" not ant.... >:D

  3. Why thank you for pointing out my autocorrect and biology flaws, and ignoring the epic philosophy! Bahaha, I hope you liked it anyway

  4. I do very much understand where you are coming from on this one, I think about it all the time.
    Is your green the same as my green?
    how can we define that when its just messages being sent to our brain? what is seeing? what is perceiving? deep thoughts.
